SYPAQ Systems Pty Ltd (SYPAQ) is proud to announce that it has appointed Amanda Holt as Chief Executive Officer. Mrs Holt replaces David Vicino, who, after 15 years at the helm of SYPAQ Systems, has become Managing Director of the SYPAQ group of companies.

Mrs Holt joined SYPAQ in 2007 as a Consulting Engineer and after leading several successful assignments, was ultimately promoted to her most recent role of General Manager, Defence & Aerospace; growing that business unit to become SYPAQ’s largest and most successful.

This appointment coincides with a change to SYPAQ Systems’ structure, focused on aligning their growing industry and domain specific Consulting and Managed Services practices as well as catering for the ongoing growth of SYPAQ’s Sensors and Surveillance division.

These changes, whilst generating economies of scale for SYPAQ Systems, will also allow the SYPAQ Group to implement its international growth strategy, focusing on new sectors, services and locations throughout the world, illustrated by SYPAQ’s rapid growth in Asia since the July 2014 inception of SYPAQ Business Partners, based in Singapore.

In a statement to staff, Mr Vicino said, “Over the last few years we’ve worked tirelessly to position ourselves as a trusted partner to our customers by exceeding expectations and delivering practical outcomes and solutions to their challenging and complex problems. Now, more than ever, those deep established relationships have placed us in a privileged position that will allow us to take the next step in our growth and evolution.”

Regarding the appointment of Mrs Holt to CEO, Mr Vicino, went on to say, “Every great team is defined by its leaders and to that end, as of 1st January 2015, Amanda Holt will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer for SYPAQ Systems. Mandy has been with SYPAQ since 2007 and in that time has proven herself time and time again as a professional of the highest order in every sense, including technical skills, business acumen, integrity, honesty, commitment, work ethic, strategic focus, leadership and customer focus. For quite some time I have considered Mandy to be my natural successor and I can say with supreme confidence that under Mandy’s stewardship the business could not be in better hands.”
